I tried to search the board but those are tiny words, and the results came out with no expected results.
I think its also called neon-wire.
I wanted to ask if anyone has used this for light the pool edges, trees, Christmas lights etc etc.
el wire = Electroluminescent wire
Its very low power consumption (0,1w per meter) less than leds, and of course less expensive then leds or fiber.
Example: You can buy 50 meters for 70€ (inverter included) or 3 meters for 9€.
It can be cut and wired back again with some skills
You can choose 9 different colours (one color per wire unfortunately) Some of them can change color from green to blue in same wire.
and of course...water proof for pools and exterior use
Its lights at 110V AC but at high frequency and obviously at low current.
They are sell with diferent source inverters, from 2AA bateries (for clothing), 12V (for car), 230V (for home) to invert it to 110V AC 1Khz.
A small transformer can light up to 120Meters and 2AA bateries can last up to several hours.
Anyone using this?
If so, please post pictures or what do you think about this material!
It can also be very fancy for carnaval!!! (tron clothing)
